The railroad’s got to run through the town of Rock Ridge. How do you drive out the townfolk in order to steal their land? Send in the toughest gang you’ve got…and name a new sheriff who’ll last about 24 hours. But that’s not really the plot of Blazing Saddles, just the pretext.

  1. This is the most tedious, unfunny, overrated movie of all time. It’s interesting that this is from the same man who produced Spaceballs, which was actually rather humorous (though also quite tedious at times). I’ll always be at a loss to understand why people think it’s so funny. His utter lack of subtlety is terrible to behold.

  2. Perhaps it was the sorry state of physical comedy in the 70’s that makes people think this is a classic but personally this kind of humour that relies on cheap ethnic jokes (aka Don Rickles) can pass away and I wouldn’t shed a tear. I know people heap praise on Blazing Saddles by saying this movie couldn’t be made today or people are too P.C. but this movie is just plain bad as well as offensive. If there is some roundabout moral paradox that Brooks is really trying to reach for it gets lost in the shuffle just leaving the bad taste of this so called humour to linger.

  3. This Movie is so Not Funny! I sat down and watched this flick with some friends who loved it and i have to say what a waiste of my time. This movie tried so hard to be unny but was not funny at all. I know a lot of rebiews were good about this movie, maybe good to the older crowd who are in there 40’s and 50’s but for the hip young generation and sophisticated one like mine in the teens and twenties this movie is pure crap. Nothing good about it at all. I just can not believe people find Blazing Saddles such a great comedy. Oh well I hated the movie.

  4. THIS is Mel Brook’s WORST movie ever. I think it’s sad how so many great actors would’ve been in it, but THAT was then.

    Usually EVERYTIME I read a review on Amazon, at least ONE [or two] people give any item “1 star”, but I’m disgusted to find so many [rednecks?] giving this piece of trash “5 stars”.

    So….I’LL be ‘that one person’!!

    The OVER-hype-n-tripe reissuing of THIS film on VHS or DVD is also pretty weird considering IT probably used the “N word” more than ANY other film in the past 30+ years! I can’t believe any TV channel [cable or broadcast] would still even show it!

    With it’s ‘synthesized animal abuse’ & ‘over-use of the N word’ it should’ve been burned & tossed years ago…

    Mel thought it would be funny to invite “horses to bring their owners to the drive-ins” on it’s first release, but I think Mel did MANY GREAT other films like “The Producers” [his BEST!] “High Anxiety” & “Silent Movie”……….so STOP re-issuing this piece of garbage over & over…OK??

  5. Unfunny. Badly timed. Tedious gags. Silly. Uninteresting. Dull. Simple-minded. Fast-forward. Regret buying. Give it away.
